Manning: Work to Do to Get Back to 100 Percent
DENVER (AP) -- New Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning says he's on the mend but still has work to do to get back to full health after a series of neck operations that forced him to miss last year.

Manning said ''I have work to do'' on Tuesday, when he was introduced as Denver's new quarterback.

''I'm not where I want to be. I want to be where I was before I was injured. There's a lot of work to do to get where we want to be from a health standpoint.''

Manning said he ''laid his cards out on the table'' when he spoke to Broncos vice president John Elway and was grateful that Denver, along with San Francisco, Tennessee and others, were willing to consider him to be their next QB.

The league's only four-time MVP agreed to a five-year, $96 million deal with the Broncos after being pursued by several teams.
